PERTH, Australia, Feb. 1, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - Anvil Mining Limited (TSX: AVM) (ASX: AVM), ("Anvil" or the "Company") announced today that in a unanimous decision rendered in Montreal on January 24, 2012, the Québec Court of Appeal dismissed court proceedings initiated in November 2010 against Anvil by the Canadian Association Against Impunity, a group of NGOs. In its decision, the Québec Court of Appeal reversed a judgment rendered by the Québec Superior Court in April 2011.

Prior to initiation of the proceedings in Québec, the incident and Anvil had been the subject of several investigations and court proceedings both in and outside the DRC.
